“Contemplative “might be a better word than “blue.” It has been rainy and dull all day. My portrait was finished by 10am and I didn’t feel very motivated to do anything else.
I brought my 2 new home made stretched canvases through into the warm part of my house and sat them on my table easel. I considered painting them with an undercoat of different colours left on my palette 🎨 but as that was black, white and cream that would not have worked. It was a black and white portrait I have been working on.
I seem to have spent a large amount of today either reading or watching THE POSITANO DIARIES on youtube.
Watching travel programmes and videos like these are something I thought I should do. When it is possible to travel again then I would like to go visit lots of places. Being prepared seems sensible.
Being in the red zone and rain is not conducive to exercise. ( not that I need an excuse) . I am looking forward to going out on the 3 orange days from Monday. Maybe I will do 2 walks each day……
It seems like it’s the time for wondering what to do next year. I have some thoughts….and a vague idea of how to motivate myself. I write things down sometimes if I read or hear them. Today I heard someone say….
Write your truth and believe in it……and if your mum/dad/ sister/ daughter/ cousin doesn’t like it…TOUGH! .
I used to have a sign on my wall saying…YOU NEED CRAZED SELF BELIEF. That always seemed quite sensible.
I remember thinking that I wanted to make something good come out of this year. It might take till next year to get it done ,but I haven’t given up yet.
Maybe tomorrow( more rain forecast) I could make some plans…I like having plans ……..
But for now it’s 🍷 time.
